Air Jordan 11 Low WMNS “Rook to Queen”

Nike

Release Date: May 24
Release Price:  $175 USD, available at select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

Nike‘s “Art of a Champion” collection keeps on running with the Air Jordan 11 Low. This exclusive women’s iteration pays homage to the instant WNBA success of Maya Moore. She achieved rookie of the year honors and helped the Minnesota Lynx reach its first-ever championship in the same year. This would then lead to a consistent wave of success with additional championships, a finals MVP, league MVP and five all-star nods.

MCM x PUMA Suede

Release Date: May 24
Release Price:  $340 USD (approximately) available via select PUMA stockists

MCM and PUMA celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the Suede model. The high-end fashion house provides the PUMA Suede with a luxury makeover in two color options of Brown/Black and White/Grey. Each edition shares MCM’s all-over monogram print as they rest atop white sole units. You’ll also find co-brand insoles, leather laces and a gold plate on each tongue.

Nike Air Max 97/Plus “Shock Orange”

Nike

Release Date: May 25
Release Price:  $175 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

The past meets the future with the latest hybrid from the Swoosh. Nike’s Air Max 97/Plus mixes the upper of the Air Max Plus with the full-length Air Max unit of the 97. The familiar colorway may channel nostalgia for some with the same colorway used on the original Air Max Plus from ‘98.

Nike Air Force 1 Low “Spring Patchwork”

Nike

Release Date: May 25
Release Price:  $130 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

Easter may be behind us but that doesn’t mean you can’t don the same pastel colors. Dubbed “Spring Patchwork,” this Nike Air Force 1 Low features textile, suede, leather and patent leather materials throughout the upper. The sole unit is done in Sail to balance out the mix of colors as Nike incorporates a special Easter egg logo on the tongue.

Nike Blazer Royal “Spring Patchwork”

Nike

Release Date: May 25
Release Price:  $110 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

Patchwork continues onto the Nike Blazer Royal. The upper mixes the same materials found in its Air Force 1 relative but kicks out the touch of pastel green. Sail is also found on the sole unit and Swoosh logo as the Easter egg stamp is found on the insole.

Air Jordan 11 “Cap & Gown”

Nike

Release Date: May 26
Release Price:  $250 USD, available via select Jordan Brand retailers and Nike SNKRS

Christmas comes a little early with this Spring’s Jordan Brand drop. The Air Jordan 11 receives another all-black treatment dubbed the “Cap & Gown.” This iteration subtracts the “Gamma Blue” accents in 2013’s drop. Premium suede makes its way onto the underlay as the model’s traditional patent leather returns as well. The signature Jumpman logo receives a jewel treatment as it’s also done in black.

Nike Air Zoom Generation “SVSM”

Nike

Release Date: May 26
Release Price:  $175 USD, available via select Nike Basketball retailers and Nike SNKRS

After a few teasers and wearing a special Nike LeBron 15 PE inspired by his high school, LeBron James‘ first signature model makes another return. This time around its “SVSM” iteration hits the shelves with a crisp white base. It’s accented by deep forest and metallic gold dust with the SVSM stitch on the heel.

adidas Consortium UltraBOOST Mid “Prototype”

Eddie Lee/HYPEBEAST

Release Date: May 26
Release Price:  $220 USD, available via select adidas Consortium retailers

adidas Consortium let’s us visit the drawing board with this UltraBOOST Mid drop. Its “Prototype” moniker carries out asymmetrical features – different hues — on the left and right sneakers as an ode to the decision-making process. Neon yellow meets suede accents throughout the upper with collegiate navy and grey added to the color scheme.

Nike Air Force 1 Foamposite Pro Cup “Triple White”

Nike

Release Date: May 26
Release Price:  $180 USD, available via select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike SNKRS

Nike‘s Foamposite technology is back, but on the Air Force 1. The familiar model makes a comeback in “Triple White” and swaps its traditional construction for a pearlized look to complement its translucent outsole. The midsole is also done in white as Nike’s branding returns to its familiar locations.
